Charoen Pokphand Foods Plc (CPF) has teamed up with Gunkul Engineering Plc to set up a Bt1.4-billion CPF solar rooftop scheme for 40 megawatts of power to lower electricity costs by 20 per cent.



Sooksunt Jiumjaiswanglerg, chief executive officer/agro industrial business and co-president at CPF, said the scheme will also help reduce greenhouse gas by the equivalence of 28,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide. 

Gunkul Dhumrongpiyawut, chairman of Gunkul’s board, said the joint scheme comprises 34 solar rooftop projects with a combined power production capacity of 40 megawatts and will be the largest solar rooftop project.
